**Weak analogue of Hartogs' Theorem: On Noetherian schemes, the
restriction of a coherent sheaf to an open set with complement
of codimension 2 in the sheaf's support, is coherent.**

Proposition 48.4.7 (Kollár). Let $j : U \to X$ be an open immersion of locally Noetherian schemes with complement $Z$. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a coherent $\mathcal{O}_U$-module. The following are equivalent

- $j_*\mathcal{F}$ is coherent,
- for $x \in \text{Ass}(\mathcal{F})$ and $z \in Z \cap \overline{\{x\}}$ and any associated prime $\mathfrak p$ of the completion $\mathcal{O}_{\overline{\{x\}}, z}^\wedge$ we have $\dim(\mathcal{O}_{\overline{\{x\}}, z}^\wedge/\mathfrak p) \geq 2$.

Proof.If (2) holds we get (1) by a combination of Lemmas 48.4.1, Remark 48.4.5, and Lemma 48.4.4. If (2) does not hold, then $j_*i_{x, *}\mathcal{O}_{W_x}$ is not finite for some $x \in \text{Ass}(\mathcal{F})$ by the discussion in Remark 48.4.6 (and Remark 48.4.5). Thus $j_*\mathcal{F}$ is not coherent by Lemma 48.4.1. $\square$

Weak analogue of Hartogs' Theorem: On Noetherian schemes, the

\end{slogan}
Let $j : U \to X$ be an open immersion of locally Noetherian schemes
with complement $Z$. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a coherent $\mathcal{O}_U$-module.
The following are equivalent
\begin{enumerate}
\item $j_*\mathcal{F}$ is coherent,
\item for $x \in \text{Ass}(\mathcal{F})$ and
$z \in Z \cap \overline{\{x\}}$ and any associated prime
$\mathfrak p$ of the completion $\mathcal{O}_{\overline{\{x\}}, z}^\wedge$
we have $\dim(\mathcal{O}_{\overline{\{x\}}, z}^\wedge/\mathfrak p) \geq 2$.
\end{enumerate}
\end{proposition}
\begin{proof}
If (2) holds we get (1) by a combination of
Lemmas \ref{lemma-check-finiteness-pushforward-on-associated-points},
Remark \ref{remark-closure}, and
Lemma \ref{lemma-sharp-finiteness-pushforward}.
If (2) does not hold, then $j_*i_{x, *}\mathcal{O}_{W_x}$ is not finite
for some $x \in \text{Ass}(\mathcal{F})$ by the discussion in
Remark \ref{remark-no-finiteness-pushforward}
(and Remark \ref{remark-closure}).
Thus $j_*\mathcal{F}$ is not coherent by
Lemma \ref{lemma-check-finiteness-pushforward-on-associated-points}.
\end{proof}
